We are very pleased to offer a fantastic 1968 Wolsley Hornet Mk3. Finished in two grey, with a Birch body and Yukon roof, this matching numbers example has been very well loved and cared for and was restored to a high standard over ten years ago with a large photographic folder detailing the work and is presented in a very good condition ready to be used, driven and enjoyed. It has only had 3 previous owners in 52 years and is accompanied with a large service history folder, very rare workshop manual and the original drivers handbook. It still wears its original FE body number on the inner wing and drivers floorpan. It also has a personalised registration number that is transfferable but is included in the sale.

On the road this Hornet will impress, the original 998 engine is virtually silent and the gearbox is precise, it has also received a sensible twin carb upgrade which gives it close to Cooper performance so it easily keeps up with modern traffic whilst being a real jem to drive, an RC40 exhaust gives it a subtle burble and Cooper S disc brakes means it goes well and stops well. You will also have to take into account how many people will want to talk to you and admire this wonderful example.

The interior is very well presented with wonderful original red leather seats with matching door cards and carpets. The three clock centre binnacle and original steering wheel are also present and correct. Driving a Hornet really does feel very special and they really do have that baby Rolls Royce feel, that is all down to how well appointed the interiors on these Cars are.

This Hornet has a very solid shell, it is the same colour underneath as it is on top, it has its original floor pans and all the panel work is solid and well presented and the chrome is in very good condition. The paintwork gleams and it will happily sit on display at any show and it does have pics of it doing just that, and it is also a very useable easy and fun car to drive. It has been fully serviced and has a full MOT which it passed first time and it is of course MOT and tax exempt and is now ready for a new adventure.
